Folk Art DFD (Duluth Fish Decoys) Ice Fishing Spearing Decoy Lure Killer Whale Shamu
DFD decoys have ended up in The American Museum of Folk Art, on a limited edition print, in a governor’s mansion, in Hollywood actors' homes, in fishing decoy books, with interior designers, in art galleries, on a DVD, and in a coffee table book devoted entirely to DFD
DFD spearing decoys are hand-crafted. As with all folk art there’s no two alike. It has glass eyes and is hand painted with a brush. The lead belly weight is stamped DFD. They all function as working decoys – though most people prefer to set them on the mantle.
Signed on the underside on the lead weight "DFD". Possibly mid 20th century but no dates found.
Approximate Dimensions: Length 8", Width 2 1/2" Height to top fin 3".
Condition: As found, no damage or repairs or repaint evident.
